Ted Nolan’s Latvia squad upset the Swiss 3-1 today, which means it’s Latvia that Canada faces in quarterfinal action on Wednesday at 12 pm ET.
Certainly the Latvians beating the Swiss is an upset, and the French-language announcers said, while I was giving my usual 147% at work and which was relayed to me by my friend Gilles, that the Swiss were probably already thinking ahead to the Canadian game, which was a bit of a mistake.
So on we go. Bye bye, Swiss. Hello Latvians.
